“Le Traître,” (The Traitor)

“Le Traître,” (The Traitor)
Description:
A military sabre pins a notice of guilt into the body of a hydra which has sprouted the head of Captain Alfred Dreyfus. The multi-headed beast, a symbol of indomitable evil, is just one of the many conventions used by Dreyfus’s anti-Semitic opponents to establish his inherent malevolence.
